At a time when labor is stretched thin, something often has to give. But since that can’t be food safety, operators are leaning on technology for help. One technology to watch is radio-frequency identification (RFID). Chipotle recently announced it would be testing RFID case labels to track its ingredients’ path from suppliers to its restaurants. If and when food safety concerns arise, the labels can help operators track them to the source quickly. What’s more, RFID labels promise to save time on inventory management by limiting the need for staff involvement (and the chances for human error).
